    The green wire is part of the turn-on circuit that the motherboard uses to turn on/off the power supply. If you connect a jumper wire between the green and gray wires, the power supply will turn on

    actually, it is supposed to be to a ground wire... im assuming that is black, as most electrical systems use black for ground. i dont remember the ATX psu color codes, but the green is to be grounded to indicate the psu to turn on.
